Within the lessons, the students will be learning about addiction, risks and the influence of family and peers on decision making. Self-awareness, managing stress, staying motivated and making healthy choices are all topics that will be addressed over the 8 weeks. Children will also learn to make and set goals and the importance of volunteering and community service.
